The dull grey mornings have slowly been getting warmer and sunnier as we’ve moved into February, and I can’t deny that I’ve loved breaking out my ahdorable wool skirts, sweater dresses, and colorful tights this past week. It’s been about a month since we’ve been back at school, and I can already feel that this semester is going to be even better than the last.
I’m very delighted to say that I have stuck to my New Years resolutions while everyone else seems to be considering theirs an after thought. The Pretty Committee is as close as ever, Derrick and I are doing delightfully well, and next weekend is OCDH’s Relay for Life and I have spent the past three weeks planning it.
One of my favorite resolutions this year was to truly make a difference in other people’s lives. I don’t mean writing out a check or liking a charity on Facebook. I mean truly working hard and trying to change this world for the better. So obviously the second I heard we were having a Relay for Life event, I volunteered myself and the Pretty Committee to plan the entire thing. We’ve organized a committee of about 25 people and we’ve been spending every spare moment trying to make this the biggest and most charitable Relay for Life our school has ever seen.
The day before Relay for Life, the OCD girls and the Pretty Committee will be spending the day baking ahdorable Valentine’s Day themed baked goods to sell at one of the booths! Inez has been researching the most delicious recipes and I’ve bought a few of the cutest heart shaped pans!
I would divulge some details, but as you can imagine I would be talking all day. You’ll just have to wait to see for yourself (;
Besides that, I have been organizing Cheerleading practices, Pretty Committee shopping trips, and dates with the crushes. As you are all aware, Valentines Day is only 2 weeks away, and the girls and I have spent countless hours at the Westchester trying to find the perfect outfits to make our crushes swoon (;
Derrick hasn’t told me what we’re doing yet for Valentine’s day, and I haven’t been able to guess! The girls and I have multiple ideas but I’m honestly clueless. At least I know he’ll love the gift I got him, a Ralph Lauren wallet filled with gift cards to his favorite stores and restaurants (:
As some of you may have been wondering, Monica’s ankle is almost healed! She only has a few more weeks in her cast and then about 6 months of physical therapy ): She’s been unbelievably helpful these past few weeks as I’ve been trying to lead the squad. I thought leading the Pretty Committee was hard, but nothing can compare to trying to get 25 girls to do the same routine ten times in a row after a horribly long school day. Without Monica’s constant help, I would be lost.
Have you girls been watching the new episodes of The Lying Games? I have been totally addicted! Ethan is such a hawtie! Him and Emma are ahdorable together (: If you haven’t seen the show yet, you definitely need to! In my opinion it’s better than Pretty Little Liars haha
I hope you all are enjoying your first month back at school! Good luck finding the perfect outfit or the perfect date for Valentine’s Day!
As you can see, my blog has undergone some serious renovations. With the new year upon us, it felt right to change things up for the better (: Besides the makeover, all of my pages are new as well. The five pages you see above are it. I’ve decided to simplify things a bit and instead of having many pages, I’ve chosen to focus on a few that I will update more often. I hope you all love the changes and take a moment to look around!
Thank you so much for all the amazingly sweet comments on my last post, I really appreciate everything you guys said (:
Also, I know I haven’t been commenting much lately but after my Math test on Thursday I’ll make sure to read all of your fabulous posts!
